LONDON Feb 20 German carmaker Volkswagen
has fixed 470,000 cars out of 1.2 million units
affected by the diesel emissions scandal in Britain, the firm's
UK managing director told lawmakers on Monday.
Paul Willis faced difficult questions from lawmakers, some
of whose constituents are angry that the firm has not been fined
in Britain and that motorists have not received compensation,
unlike VW owners in the United States.
"Out of 1.2 million technical measures which have to be
applied, as of today, we have applied 470,000 and at the current
rate we are applying these measures to 20,000 cars a week,"
